UIC Day of Service

The UIC Day of Service is UIC's largest service event, and takes place annually during the month of April. With partners from multiple sites and community organizations across Chicagoland, the day brings together the entire UIC community to give back to Chicago.

2020 Updates:

Due to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (Covid-19) global pandemic, and its impact on the spring 2020 semester, the 2020 UIC Day of Service has been canceled.

2019 Impact:

From planting seeds to cleaning beaches, the UIC community made an impressive impact serving at the April 2019 event. With 180 participants and 679.5 service hours, volunteers served at 13 service sites across Chicago including PAWS Chicago, El Paseo Community Garden, Alliance for the Great Lakes, UCAN, Planned Parenthood, and more! This led to an economic impact of $18,271.46 for the state of Illinois.

In the Past:

April 2018 - More than 140 UIC students, alumni, employees and others dedicated over 400 hours to giving back to Chicago-area communities during the ninth annual UIC Day of Service. Participants volunteered at 20 sites that served 17 nonprofits. To read more, visit https://today.uic.edu/uic-day-of-service.
